This is what you idiots don't seen capable of grasping.
Man's pollution increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
It doesn't mater if there were natural low or naturally high levels of these gases, man increased them by adding more.
Flack is counting cars that go by his house. He noticed that on some months there are more than others. he plots these on a graph & it has with peaks & valleys.
A new business opens down the street. It has employees & customers now adding to the traffic.
The bumps from before are still there but now they are higher because of the new traffic.
Man has added to the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Just as that new business added traffic past Flack's house.
Do you honestly think China and India - the world's biggest Co2 emitters - are going to do one thing to curb these emissions? Co2 emissions have gone down in the United States and, even if we eliminated them altogether, it's not going to make a dent.

Get a grip on reality before jumping in line and falling in lockstep. It's embarrassing.

No, I wanted our president to act like a leader instead of a politically motivated coward. This White House never intended to push for an extension of U.S. troops in Iraq because it wasn't politically advantageous and didn't fit into his personal agenda.
This administration's negotiating strategy failed to take into account Iraqi politics and reach out to a broad enough group of Iraqi political leaders, and sent contradictory messages on the troop extension throughout the process.
Iraqi Ambassador Samir Sumaida'ie said that there was widespread support in Iraq for an extension, and there were other options such as putting the remaining troops on the embassy's diplomatic rolls which would automatically give them immunity.
Obama focused only on Maliki and neglected to consider any other options, but serious negotiations also got started far too late.
Obama wanted to make it look not like they failed to reach an agreement and fulfilled a campaign promise. It was very clear, however, Panetta and Gates wanted an agreement.
According to Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, "It's particularly troubling because having some sort of presence there would have really facilitated our policy vis-a-vis the Iranians and what's going on in Syria. The Iranian influence is going up in Iraq. It makes it harder for us to play our cards, and that's a real setback. We've spent a lot of blood and treasure in Iraq. And these days, stability in that region is not what it used to be."
Obama failed once again as a leader because he's a political power hungry radical liberal.
no, there was not widespread support for the US troops in Iraq, certainly not under any conditions acceptable to our military.

why do you think they pushed so hard to get us out?

and if you say that AQ has won there, then you are saying they want us there? you can't even make a lick of sense, fool. it is getting embarrassing pointing out time and time again how idiotic your statements are...

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) refused last week to adopt federal standards aimed at combatting rape in prisons, saying that it would be "impossible" for Texas to comply with the new measures.

The DOJ's rules address widespread sexual assault in prisons by imposing requirements such as separating teens from adults, eliminating cross-gender pat-downs in teen and juvenile units and allotting more staff to juvenile facilities. The federal government spent 10 years soliciting input from experts as to how to best implement the law.

Perry argued that the DOJ's rules wouldn't be feasible in Texas, because the state -- unlike the federal government -- considers 17-year-old inmates to be adults rather than teens. The governor wrote that it would be too expensive to separate those younger inmates from other adult prisoners, and that the cost of adding more staff would be "unacceptable" in smaller counties.

Texas could lose federal grant money if state prisons don't comply with the law

Another example [of progressive stupidity] just reared its ugly head in Plymouth, Michigan, where the locality’s high school is tearing down newly constructed bleachers in deference to the equality police.
¨A new set of seating is being torn down outside the Plymouth Wildcats varsity boys' baseball field, not long before the season begins, because the fields for boys' and girls' athletics must be equal.
A group of parents raised money for a raised seating deck by the field, as it was hard to see the games through a chain-link fence. The parents even did the installation themselves, and also paid for a new scoreboard.
So what happened? Some unnamed malcontent lodged a complaint with the feral government, at which point U.S Education Department Office for Civil Rights’ overlords decreed that the seating must go. Ain’t equality grand?¨
shouldn't that school district administrator have known about this regulation?

some people just can't do their jobs...guess he won't have a job for long...
